not how we tackle our deficit. >> the pressure now mounting on joe biden with the kentucky clash just over 24 hours away. can he seal the deal or is he facing a mission impossible? even with the a-team linking arms the president's campaign is sticking by its own balance plan and calling reinforcements to gear up. >> i would tell them to take whatever nervous energy they have and whatever hand wringing they will do over the next 24 to 48 hours and put that into a real effort to get this president re-elected. the president can't do it by himself. >> obama has to stand and deliver and nobody can do it for him. >> can the president recover? >> right. >> can he come back and be president on the stage with the contender mitt romney? >> how great is it for barack obama, look at this positively, he's the underdog now. the president of the united states is now the underdog. >> mitt romney will be stump thing hour in battleground ohio with the fiery surrogate chris christie who will be bringing what some on the left call his own jersey shore brand of gtl. go tell lies. meanwhile, romney's
promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficit in half. he was so confident that shortly after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of londo
means blowing up the deficit or raising taxes on middle-class families. one or the other. pick your poison. last week, mitt romney said, there is no addition to the deficit with my tax plan. if he says it is not true, then it is not true. ok. it is true that it is not going to add to the deficit, that leaves only one option. that is asking middle-class families to foot the bill by getting rid of the deductions for owning a home, raising kids, or sending them to college. as it turned out, most folks do not like that idea either. just last week, on stage, governor romney decided that instead of changing his plan, he would pretended did not exist. what $5 trillion tax cut? i do not know anything about that tax cut. pay no attention to the tax cut under the carpet, behind the curtain. when he was asked how he would cut the deficit, he said he could make the math work by eliminating local public funding for pbs. by the way, this is not new. this is what he has been saying every time he is asked a question. we can cut out pbs. for all you moms and kids out there, do not worry. somebody is
it. >> bill: no, we haven't balanced the debt! are you kidding me! we have a $1 trillion deficit! >> holding steady. >> bill: said a -- >> we had a surplus under clinton. >> bill: no, no, no, no. the debt wasn't xed out. you're mixing up the deficit with the debt. no, no, no, you're missing the deficit with the debt is yearly spending. the debt is cumulative. the debt wasn't wiped out. >> 1.7 trail in bush tax cuts, yes? that was -- >> bill: i'm not gog defend bush or the republican party. i'm going to tell you one thing, the highest tax revenues in the history of this nation occurred in 2007. the government got more money from we, the people, than any other time in history under the bush tax, the rich tax cuts. >> bill: after an hour at the podium, the two moved to more comfortable quarters. >> how is it that two personalities such as yourselves who are almost polar opposites politically, share a willingness to come together when congress can't? what advice would you give congress? [ applause ] [ laughter ] >> bill: what would you like for christmas, little boy? [ laughter ] get
so they don't add to deficits and says that he would do so in large part by curbing tax breaks on the rich. he also has promised not to raise taxes on the middle class. now, this triggered a pretty hot exchange between joe biden and paul ryan over whether it's mathematically possible. let's bring in christine romans to separate fact from fiction. good morning. >> good morning, randi. paul ryan claimed you could cut income taxes by 20% across the board and all while keeping this deficit neutral. listen to that fiery exchange. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is matmatically possible. >> the nonpolicy tax center says it's not mathematically possible with the amount of information we have about romney's tax plan. not possible to cut rates as much as he would like without deductions that would hurt the middle class. investment taxes and dividend taxes, which the romney campaign has said it wouldn't do. so, for those reasons, our verdict here is that it's false. you can't
$50,000 at 100% it would only run the government 90 days. we would still have a $300 billion deficit. there are not enough rich people to tax to pay for all of their spending. watch out, middle-class, the tax issues are coming to you. host: joseph is in our jacksonville, florida line, in support of president obama. caller: good morning. i enjoyed the debate. several things caught my eye with vice president biden's. he did a lot of laughing and smirking. some of it was called for and some was not. going back to last week, watching romney tell those untruths, i believe he had to do some of that because the only thing paul ryan was doing was complementing what romney was doing, which was lying. so i believe biden had to interrupt because there were times when things ryan was saying did not make any sense. the 47%, they cannot clarify the that this really has hurt a lot of people by what they have said and they cannot live up to that. then president obama gets in office the first day and the republicans say we will do everything we can to make sure you are one-term president. how can you
of $3 trillion in deficit reductions, which is some combination of tax revenue and spending cuts. therein lies the problem. we have a situation where democrats have been loath to to target the deep spending cuts to domestic programs an impediment programs that would be needed to cut a deal, -- entitlement programs that would be needed to cut a deal, and republicans are loath to consider the idea of any sort of new tax revenue that could be added to the picture. so, how do you put this deal together in no way that makes a policy sense, but also would satisfy the political differences on either side? it really is difficult. if you look to the projections, people say if we do not do anything, this would be great for the nation put the deficit, because tax revenues would automatically go up, spending would go down, and our national deficit would nearly be cut in half. that is a great outcome. yes, it is, but the other hand, the economy, which is in a fragile state, would decline, and we've seen projections of a 0.5% reduction in gdp growth which experts say would put the economy in a
. >> it is an alluring prospect to cut taxes on the wealthiest people, reduce the deficit, but the mass dictates you cannot have it all. the arithmetic, as president clinton said. the reality is, any path forward that promises to cut rates will fail to reduce the deficit or fail to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can at most achieve two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. host: senator charles schumer, democrat, new york, yesterday, talking about these negotiations on the so-called fiscal cliff. the gang of eight is trying to come up with some alternative plan to address that. we're spending a couple more minutes here, one or two more phone calls about the supreme court hearing the affirmative action case. they are going to release the audio of the arguments on friday after 1:00 p.m. we will put that up and air that on friday. go to c-span.org for more details about when all
campaign stop in new hampshire was talking about the threat of deficit spending. it's probably something you might hear tonight at the vice- presidential debate. here's a preview. [video clip] >> we cannot keep borrowing 36 cents of every dollar our government spends. we cannot keep the federal reserve doing what. we cannot keep looking our children in the eye, knowing that we are going to give them a diminished future because we are spending their money today. it's a very simple idea. mitt romney and i will bring it to washington. we've got to stop spending money we don't have. we must cut spending. we must get this balanced budget. we must get this debt under control. this debt not only hurts our economy today with the threat of higher interest rates and a losing a dollar and much higher tax rates. we know that we are giving the students here at this academy, our children and grandchildren, a lower standard of living. we've never done that in this country before. host: vice-presidential candidate paul ryan in new hampshire at a recent event. here's what you might hear from the vice-pre
to cut the deficit in half in four years. we have four budget it is and four trillion dollar deficits. a debt crisis is coming and we can't keep spend borrowing like and spending money we don't have. leaders run to problems to fix problems. >> steve: i got this tweet. why was bush crusify biden didn't get information on the intelligence community and that is okay. >> steve: ultimately some polls went out and they did snap pollings. cnn paul ryan . cnbc. winner 20 points. >> brian: cbsdid joe biden. >> steve: they did a focus group for 50 people. >> gretchen: we have frank coming up. and we'll show you that. now the rest of the head lineups for friday. one month after ambassador stevens was ciled. lawrence pope is the new charge of affairs. he will represent. pope retired 12 years ago and an ambassador to chad and political advisor for the special command and special operations in the middle east. governor mitt romney getting a spiritual boost from billy graham. >> reverend graham added he would do everything to help him. franklin graham has provided council to every president since ha
where we can compromise and come to the middle and we must do that. we have a huge deficit and like i said earlier, a little amnesia how we got there but we are there and we have to deal with this. it's a must do and for the good of the country and same as senator, as tom, excuse me. i didn't mean to relegate you to senator. but i have children and grandchildren and we have got to do some things right for the future of this country. it's a privilege for us, all of us in this country. >> moderator: along those same lines congress and boswell what is the most important things that you think, the most important thing congress can do that would stimulate job growth or lift the overall economy? boswell: right now we are an agriculture stated we are much more. we are certainly in agriculture state and we don't have a farm bill. it comes up every five years and it's very important to iowa and all of the crop bearing fire for producing states in the middle was an across the country. we have to have a farm bill and there have been political posturing. the speaker -- mr. latham's best friend i'
surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. >> i suppose mr. romney thought the president wouldn't recognize the term trickle-down if he twisted it around. romney is proposing boilerplate trickle-down economics providing tax relief for businesses with the false hope that they won pocket that money but rather put it into new jobs. help the rich get richer and then they'll help everyone else. but hey, mr. romney's plan as stated in the debate may in fact sound right to you. but don't call it new. it's a been there, done that track record. lower taxes on the rich, simply don't lead to job growth. when you compare the top marginal income tax rate, the tax rate that top earners get taxed over the highest threshold with employment, growth happens when taxes are higher, not lower. let me show you a chart that the president could have used this week to simplify the whole debate. this is what the election boils down to right here. larry bartels' chart makes it clear, under democratic presidents, everyone does better, even the very top. talk
of the world. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: on deficit reduction, the president accused romney of salesmanship, not leadership, part of the new approach by this president to attack not just romney's policies, scott, but his character. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. the obama campaign has been running ads in ohio for months painting romney has a hard- hearted businessman indifferent to layoffs. romney now has 28 days to turn that around. jan crawford is with the campaign tonight. jan? >> reporter: well, scott, romney arrived here in ohio with a boost in momentum and a slightly different approach. he's showing a softer side. he's also being more aggressive in defending himself. at his family's urging, romney-- a private man-- has been telling personal stories of helping others. today in iowa he talked of meeting a former navy seal who was killed, along with three other americans, in the attacks in libya. >> and it -- it touched me, obviously, as i recognized this young man that i thought was so impressive had lost his life in the service of his fellow men and women. >> reporter: no
of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that the tax policy center which is cited by the obama campaign it's going to cost five trillion has been said by the director of the to be completely untrue. let me move on. the president has added two new things to his campaign speeches. he tells his audiences he says romney wants to kill big bird but more credibly he points to the unemployment rate that drops below 8%. it shows the economy under his leadersh
. daniels, indiana has balanced budgets. when governor daniels stepped into office, there was a deficit. at the same time, there were a variety of tactics like delaying payments. my question to my colleagues on the stage is, how will we avoid the mistakes of the past that allowed indiana to go so deep in red? how do we ensure the next administration produces honestly balanced budgets and preserves the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> we have bipartisan control of government. it is essential. we have a republican house and senate and a democratic governor. i like your idea. i get kind of a kick, the congressmen and i have known each other for years. he is a fine person, but we disagree on many things. there is the candidate and the congressmen. humanist 86% of the votes. -- you missed 86% of the votes. and you would vote governor daniels' name. mitch daniels is a friend of mine, but he shows up to work every day. he is there. you are talking about our financial situation and when you were in congress and in control, president bush was in office, you voted five times to raise
. especially facing a trillion dollars budget deficit and a $16 trillion national debt. jon stewart and i debated the issue on saturday. >> the reason that we invest in things like public television is that it brings educational programs to communities that would not have them. it's one of the best investments we ever made in the country. >> bill: $16 trillion and we got to pay for bill moyer. let him compete on his own. you want educational programs, watch your program! spring for the cable, all right. let him compete on his own! come on. >> bill o'reilly is identified $130 million from npr because npr should be able to compete on its own. >> bill: correct. >> bill: to be clear, national public radio, npr, is part, just part of the public broadcasting umbrella in which again it's receiving close to $450 million this year alone. assisting governor romney's weak points, president obama apparently thinks he has an opportunity with this controversy. >> finally somebody is cracking down on big bird. elmo has been seen in a white suburban, he's driving for the border. governor romney's plan is
a 2-0 deficit, best of five. washington beat st. louis by one. that series going to game five today as well. >> very cool. >>> all right. coming up next just ahead, continuing coverage of last night's vice-presidential debate. find out from our political analyst how the candidate did. >> later, a much deserved homecoming. robin roberts back in her own bed this morning. and an update coming up. ♪ ♪ things can only get better ♪ ♪ believe me this is going to make you stronger ♪ ♪ gonna make you stronger ♪ >> announcer: "world news now" weather brought to you by no!no! hair removal. to you by no no hair removal. follow the wings. hair removal. >>> well now that the debate has wrapped up, the scorecard are in on who had the best hits and where the points were made. >> "nightline" brought in some heavyweight political analysts. take a listen and see what marks they gave the veeps. >> i thought what ryan had to do was stand toe to toe with joe biden. i thought that was the basis for grading him on style. and i thought he closed what was not just a decade's long ex
the deficit, and that's going to fall on middle-class families so it's a question of philosophy here, whether you think there is enough and other things he says he'll do to cut spending in the budget to make up the money that would be lost in revenue from that 20% across the board tax cut or whether you believe that the plan that president obama is saying to say that there should be cut for middle-class taxes, extension for bush tax cuts for those making under $250,000 and not for others and that that money should be used to make up the revenue there. >> lori, there was also a dispute add to whether ryan would have voted for plan that would have raised out-of-pocket cost. take a listen. >> who do you trust on this? a man who introduce add bill that would raise it $6,400 a year. knowing it, passing it, and romney saying -- >> that stay tiks tick was completely misleading. >> those are the fact, right? >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. >> so prp says ryan's plan would have cost $6,400 more. ryan calls that completely misleading as you saw there. who's right
deficits. >> i understand. hang on. hang on. hang on. ron, we're not going to do talking points here. i'm asking you a very simple question. >> i'm not doing talking points. >> i didn't ask you about the economy. we can get to that. what did he mean in his statement that seems to be contradictory statements? >> i just told you what he meant. he said that his agenda is not going to be focused on abortion. it's going to be -- he did not say it was going to be focused on other issues, but obviously it's going to be. that's why he talked about the economy, what voters care about in these 27 days. >> romney was criticized for changing views on key issues and former president clinton had something to say about it. take a listen. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i thought, wow! here is old moderate mitt. where have you been, boy? i missed you all these last few years. just show up with a sunny face and say, i didn't say all that stuff i said the last two years. i don't have that tax plan i had for the last two years. are you going to believe me or yo
the truth. it was not an $8 billion deficit. >> ted, everybody is lying according to you. $250 million. >> only the republicans. >> auto industry is exceedingly important in the state, but if you look at where ohio has grown in job creation since kasik became governor, it has been in manufacturing. we have had significant growth in jobs. say, 123,000 new jobs. those have not been in the job -- in the auto industry. auto industry has not gone up. if you look at what kasik has done, he has made a real difference. he has the same philosophy and will do the same thing that mitt romney will do as president. lower taxes, less regulation, balance the budget. these are things that make a difference. the other thing that romney will do that the president is not doing and simply, frankly, is incapable of doing. i served with him for two years in the u.s. sete. nice guy. talented. horribly partisan. what mitt romney will do as president is the same thing that ronald reagan did and, frankly, bill clinton did. hold your principles. be tough. in the end you know you have to negotiate, and that's the
deficit topping that number for the fourth straight year. president obama had promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. next, 51.4 million, that's how many people watched the vice presidential debate on tv between paul ryan and joe biden. fox news the top cable network 10 million viewers. >> topped any network. >> combined can't even top them. try. the asbury park press reporting that's how much the government spent on experimental text terror program in new jersey. police say there are not been any credible tips so far using that service. >> that's a relief. there are more developments this morning in the deadly meningitis outbreak that has claimed the lives of 14 people. the number of confirmed cases now at 185 across 12 states. >> roughly 14,000 have been exposed to the recalled drug. will cece more cases and could you be at risk? joining us now is dr. marc siegel associate professor of medicine at nyu and part of our medical a team there is a new headline this morning on this new fungus that they have discovered, right? >> absolutely. the new headline is that i
and washington doesn't get the deficit situation taken care of, these tax limitations are coming in, spending cuts are going to happen and that is what businesses are really afraid of. >> one of our headlines, excuses, excuses. i love that because one study says that a third of americans play hooky from work. >> yeah, a third. can you believe that? what is really interesting, too, is what their excuses are. some of the ones that i thought were some of my favorite. one man said that he forgot that he had -- he got hired for the job. >> what? >> yes. another woman said that her grandmother was being exhumed for an investigation. and therefore can't come in to work. her grandmother, someone part of the manson family that was under investigation now? yeah, so, that -- so there's that. and also, people still look at -- employers also investigate whether or not you're coming into work or not. that's something you have to be worried about, too. >> wow. okay, that's pretty good. thank you very much hitha prabhakar. i'm never using either of those now. >> no. >> in this morning's one-minute playback,
puts obama from a narrow lead to a narrow deficit. effectively, though, this race is deadlocked. when we get to the swing states we will see that. >>gregg: people call this a bounce for romney. >> but a bounce does not last in >>pat: this could be the most significant debate in terms of impact other than reagan's debate against carter in affecting the race. debates usually do not move numbers. romney is getting real movement out of the debate. what it does and what has happened, romney's favorable rating has skyrocketed. we saw that among uncommitted voters in the cbs poll, after the debate, and we talked about this last week, 30 percent of the people say he cared about them, it doubled to 53 percent. he did what we suggested. by the way that is the important thing, changing the structure of the race. that now ahead it a real close race, not just in numbers but in context. >>gregg: in all of the attack ads over the last six months, $100 million has been spent by the obama campaign demonizing mitt romney and i think the public expectation was expecting this crazed guy who kills people.
'm going to reduce deductions and make sure it's deficit neutral, but i'm not raising taxes on the middle class. and depending on how you look at that, it's hard to make that math add. >> said one other thing, people that are now on entitlements will not be affected at all. >> right. so if all of that -- whether it's the tax policy, i know we've talked about there's a view that it's biased, but everybody who has looked at these numbers i have not found somebody who said the math adds. >> baked into those -- >> it doesn't say the math adds, no, only at 100,000. if you consider -- you're making over $100,000 your taxes are going up. you consider those people middle class or not? >> taxes are going to go up on certain people when the deductions go out. >> but you can't say at the same time that not raising taxes on the middle class -- >> stop. he said something else, which is equally important. if we get rid of some of these stupid regulations that are impairing jobs. >> right. >> let me give you one -- >> that's an argument i accept to some degree. >> david farr, the ceo of emerson electric
's always easier to hold onto a lead than to overcome a deficit. the fact is ohio remain as tough ro row to hoe. according to our recent poll, obama is ahead over romney. as you know, if you've about been paying attention to this week in voter suppression, running a running an effective campaign just plan a. this year state republican law marmers have drafted a blue print for a plan b which goes something like this. if you can't get enough people to vote for you, go out of your way to make sure that enough people don't vote for the other guy. even if that means appealing all the way to the supreme court. which is exactly what the ohio secretary of state jon husted is trying to do. the attorney general from 15 other states joined him yesterday with an amicus brief in support, and here's why those three days mater. 2008, 97,000 votes were cast in ohio the three days before election day. and the vast majority of those votes were cast by african-americans to when the state and the presidency. this year thanks to ohio state those votes might never be cast and neither could the victory that th
romney and paul ryan have to put people back to work in northeast ohio and get at the deficit and debt in this country. [cheers and applause] it's going to be about his pro-growth proposals to restore the american dream. martha: you can hear it. that is the push in ohio this week from the romney campaign, spending four out of five days in the buckeye state this week. bill: want to check out the billboard and zero in on the state of ohio. you heard so much about this. there is a very good reason why ohio is such a battleground. on our map section what we've done and will do for the next four weeks, we zeroed in own the battleground states based on polling. the 11 states you see outlined in yellow are considered too close to call. in the middle of all of this is the state of ohio here. put what if scenario into action here. if you put the surveys we've taken right here the president appears to have 201 electoral votes and mitt romney at 191. you need 270 to win the white house. so why ohio? if we were to click on mitt romney here and give him 18 electoral votes in the buckeye state you s
